Access to Modern Energy (AME) is increasingly recognised as an area of humanitarian concern. If communities affected by crises go without proper access to energy, it becomes impossible for them to meet the basic needs of life. Following the success of previous programmes and responding to the need for support,DCHI and RVO have launched the second Humanitarian Accelerator Programme for Access to Modern Energy (AME). Access to modern and clean energy is a precondition for social wellbeing and economic development, and is a key focus for DCHI. The energy transformation in humanitarian aid is still relatively new, and leaves many unknown aspects to be explored. The aim of the AME Accelerator Programme is to anchor the theme of access to modern energy within Dutch humanitarian organisations through participation in, and joint learning from, innovative pilot projects which support the energy transition in humanitarian contextsThe AME Humanitarian Accelerator Programme (HAP) followed DCHI’s funnel process, where the best proposals were selected, while maintaining focus on building confidence and introducing and encouraging collaboration between participants from different sectors. The programme brought transformation at three levels: introducing a new theme, bringing together new partners, and exploring new ways of working for the humanitarian sector. Successful pilots were connected to funding opportunities. The two main organisers of the AME Programme are RVO and DCHI. RVO contributes expertise, a network of energy experts, knowledge and lessons from previous energy projects, and funding and management support. DCHI brings humanitarian innovation expertise and facilitates the accelerator programme.
